I’m looking for some advice on the best way to produce dashboards based around Windows services using the win_services input plugin. There’s a few key services that we care about and are looking to setup some alerts on these services depending on the state. In the begining we are pulling in the stats on all of the services on the server.
Now that i’ve got telegraf dumping the stats into the influxdb with the following config:
# Names of the services to monitor. Leave empty to monitor all the available services on the host
# service_names = [""]
What would people say is the best approach to use for putting together dashboards to show the status of key services across hosts, eg DFS, ASP session state and IIS.
